You might want to check with your ISP (or whoever is hosting your outgoing mail). Sometimes they tell you to use a different port for outgoing mail instead of the default port (25).

Check with your ISP to what their outgoing mail server is supposed to be. I had the same issue with mine. Had to change my outgoing server to after I got rid of my .mac account. Try or .net I had to mess around with mine till I figured it out. Or you could call them?
